Free (& Nearly Free) Summer

Free and Nearly Free 2015 Summer Activities in Redding, CA

My children would love to screen hop all day long during the summer.  You know how it goes.  They hop from the TV, to the tablet, and then to the computer. But that leads to cranky children and an even crankier mom.  How do we keep them busy without it breaking the bank? Well...I did a little digging. Look at some of the great activities I found!

Let's try to avoid too much of this.
(But hey...if you're going to play video games, you might as well do it in style.)
